    Pros

    Acxiom is an awesome place to explore and put your talents to work! Acxiom offers 40 hours of volunteer time and they encourage employees to give back to the communities they are most passionate about. Flexible and collaborative work environments and a CEO who's got a ton of heart and passion for creating a great place for everyone to work and be successful.

    Cons

    Acxiom needs more women and people of color in the hiring plans...but that's every tech company! Lean in to engage employees with awesome rituals that matter most and connect employees to Acxiom and to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving for good, good people, good leaders and good results!! And of course keep the heart!! Go Acxiom!!!

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Acxiom was a great company to work for 10 years ago. It grew up out of Arkansas and our greatest strength was in creating innovative solutions to problems our customers were facing, often for the first time in the industry. No one had been trained on those, but everyone was willing to try and, "think outside the box" was the daily norm. We worked our hearts out and became extremely loyal to each other and to the company. We were also extremely successful.

    Cons

    Now it seems like Acxiom has sold out to a Silicon Valley dream. The core business was built on hosted marketing databases and the bedrock of identity resolution technologies - AbiliTec. Since Scott Howe came onboard and decided we should buy LiveRamp, all of the product development and resources are focused on making that part of the business successful above all else. Sales people in the Marketing Services and Audience Solutions divisions have stiff competition from the LiveRamp reps. Leadership takes months to set the fiscal year quotas and then often raises them half-way through the year "as needed" to meet their larger goals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop burning through the cadre of experience professionals across all roles, but especially in sales. Stop hiring VPs from competitive companies and instead provide more sales and product support.

    Pros

    Good benefits and each location has it's own perks. Work from home options are available and some employees are home based.

    Cons

    They are stingy with pay increases and pay does not always reflect your position. The internal IT organization is awful and sucks money from the accounts to stay profitable, which causes headaches.
